7:09 am
soon as this individual will, if he doesn't cooperate they can't get it from him i was going to say but they'll ask his family and companions. what was the radicalization process for this individual and, again, obviously a little focus on the trip overseas, we know that he went to other places and as was said is he telling the truth as to where he went. did he go to turkey or syria? and obviously these trips are going to much more in-depth investigations. >> hopefully we can get him to open up about those things. thank you, ray. >> thanks, now to how this plays in the race for the white house. just 49 days until the final votes. donald trump and hillary clinton traded sharp attacks all day and abc's tom llamas is in ft. myers, florida, where a fiery rally was held by donald trump. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. donald trump out with colorful thoughts about that bombing suspect and how he's being treated right now.

7:13 am
can respond to the terrorists. she's also carving out a different spot than barack obama on this. it was interesting to see her come out before the president to condemn these attacks, to brand them as terrorism before the president. she's trying to find a ground between donald trump and barack obama. >> some other political stories out. you saw chris christie, that trial on the george washington bridge scandal. the bridgegate scandal and prosecutors saying he knew about the traffic jams yet donald trump is standing by him. >> absolutely but if you re donald trump came out and said, of course, chris christie knew. he definitely knew. i mean, he was emphatic so perhaps the person least surprised by this allegation is donald trump himself. he's sticking to christie and in doing so he's saying he's sticking to him because christie tuck by him. >> the news is coming from a member of the kennedy family on this next one. >> the two most political families, kennedys and bushes

7:36 am
drugs, right, because their position is she stole the drugs. his lawyer has made that statement already. so first of all they'll have to say he provided the drugs. secondly they'll have to be able to demonstrate those were the drugs that killed her and, number three, they're going to have to show it was reasonably foreseeable that something like this could or would happen. >> that's a lot to have to try and prove. what about the claim that carrey used a false name to obtain somf if he had been using a fake name to get drugs for her, that would be a much bigger problem than using a fake name to get drugs for him. their position, carrey's position is actors do this all the time. celebrities do this all the time to protect their privacy. that's not really a legal defense because you're not supposed to do that. you're not supposed to give a fake name. but that doesn't necessarily mean that she -- that the family
7:37 am
jim carrey gave a fake name. >> the family also, they're really banking on those text messages and feel they're damaging. >> you heard it from the lawyer. basically saying that this was a ruse to cover it up. maybe, that will be an important question in terms of did he provide her with the drugs? an important question not the only question in this lawsuit, but that's the most important hurdle for them to overcome first, which is he gave her the drugs, because if they can't show he gave her the drugs they have >> i know it's a difficult time for the family. a loss like this. >> absolutely. very personal case. >> very much so. all right, dan, thanks very much. over to michael now and find out what's on the big board. michael. >> all right, thank you, robin. coming up on our big board are you throwing away money at the gas pump? a report revealing how americans are wasting billions of dollars at the pump and the cheerios lawsuit, are their healthy claims misleading? our insiders join us in two minutes.

7:41 am
of those fake accounts were created, how can that person have walked out of wells fargo with a kind of pay package in the millions of dollars in compensation that they walked out? they're going to be pushing today for -- they'll say to wells fargo that person should not have left the company with that kind of money. you should take it back. >> rebecca, what can congress actually do? say they say you should take it back. can they actually make that happen, first of all, send customer. >> ultimately this is going to be a pr nightmare for wells fargo. either way. but wells fargo is ultimately the arbiter and make the decision whether that happens and as far as the customer is concerned wells fargo in this whole mess has set aside $5 million to compensate any customer who was impacted by this. they've already paid out $2.6 million and have the $2.4 million set aside but this is

they've lost a lot of it. >> hard to gain it back once you lose it, george. >> it sure is. >> thank you, rebecca. now tay report out about throwing away money at the gas pump. according to research by aaa, america has wasted billions of dollars. last year using premium gas they didn't need and our own abc's david kerley joins us. hello, david. good morning. >> good morning, michael. you know we all like to take care of our cars. >> i'm one of the guys who puts up the pump and i go, you know what, i'll get that 91, that 93, i feel like it does -- but that's billions and a serious chunk of change. >> the high octane you're talking about, the different choices you have, regular or premium and, you know, do you want to give your car ground beef or a steak. give it premium. believe this, 16 million americans are putting premium in a car that doesn't need it and according to aaa, that means they are wasting money, 2$2.1 billion a year spent on premium
7:43 am
road that americans drive take regular gas and what aaa is saying, guys, is basically that's all you need to put in in your regular gas and it'll work just fine. >> seems like you're wasting all that hall of fame change. >> i know. sunny is over here huffing and puffing like i've been wasting money. >> i'm putting in regular. starting today. >> here's the other side of the story. we have a viewer, nicole, who tweeted on our social site and said she uses it in her older car because it knocks and pings if better even if it's not required? >> yes, she's probably getting rid of the ping but the problem is the money she's spending if she saved it all and tuned up the car and made it run the way it was supposed to it wouldn't be pinging. what aaa did, they took cars and put it on a treadmill for cars and found there was no increase in horsepower, no increase in performance if you put premium in a regular. the advice from aaa make sure it's running right and put in the regular gas.
7:44 am
of us do that have to have premium continue to put premium in. >> there's your excuse. >> there's my excuse. that new lawsuit about cheerios. general mills defending itself against this and sunny is here with more. a spokesperson said general mills continues to stand behind the quality of these products and the accuracy of the product's labels. what exactly are the plaintiffs complaining about. >> our honey nut listen, honey nut cheerios is being deceptively advertised so touting all the health benefits saying it can lower cholesterol but highlighting the fact it has a pretty high sugar content saying that is not right. not giving the consumer the right information. >> but there's a growing number of lawsuits against these big food companies and even if this one is successful how does it impact or affect the industry. >> these lawsuits really aren't successful.
7:45 am
on this issue and makes sure that the consumer looks a little more carefully at these labels and it also makes these companies better companies. it makes them good corporate citizens so there's not as much duping going on so really a relationship but i always caution people, just read the labels because even though they may deceptively advertise on the front, if you look at the side, the content is there so do your job as a mom, do your job as a parent. look at the label. >> you wanted to >> i know but you really can't. you got to look. >> i just assume all cereal has sugar and i'm eating it because i want it. plain and simple. sunny, thank you. david, thank you and rebecca, thank you, as well. coming up, tim tebow's big debut on the baseball field. george, i thought you were going to leave here. you were going to play for the mets. i'm confused. >> i got cut in sophomore year. but she always told me i don't care if you turn out
